MTA students Gavi Goldstein (’17), Meechael Hizami (’16), and Ariel Manakhimov (’17) attended the Congress of Future Medical Leaders recently. The Congress is a prestigious academic conference sponsored by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. As it is designed to bring together the best young minds who are interested in the field of medicine and expose them to the most recent advances in the field, students may attend only if they have earned a 3.5 GPA or better in high school and have been nominated by their faculty.

After the conference, Goldstein, Hizami, and Manakhimov were each awarded for excellence in their participation.

Among the highlights of the conference were watching surgery performed live and attending lectures by some of the greatest living minds in medicine. But all agreed that the best part was simply getting to meet amazing people in the field and hearing their stories.
